I'd love to try a VR headset somewhere but, as far as I know, no one I know has one and no stores near me have demos available. I never jumped at the Kinect or the Playstation Move, and if I lived without even trying those, then most likely I won't try VR. Not unless something dramatic changes.
Aside from the obvious cost factor, VR is also difficult to show off in a group setting, which must put a damper on word-of-mouth marketing. It's hard to imagine a group of people taking turns with a headset; it's not like it's a party game like Guitar Hero. The commercials I've seen for headsets have similar issues. They mostly show people trying on the gear and going, "whoah," or some variation. I guess the impulse is to then want to try it out for yourself, but then we're back to the same problem.
So, basically, I'd absolutely jump at the chance to experience VR somewhere, but it doesn't seem likely, or easy, anytime soon.
